    i also had this sound when i was arnd 3000 KM mark, got my first checkup at 3400 kms and the sound vanished .. i don't know what TASS guys did nd i didn't even bothered to ask ...
    but m sure that nothing and i mean No part was changed or repaired.. just tighten up i'll say ..

    Did you by any chance get to check the engine guard and if it's touching something. I had similar problem only in reverse but it was more of metal clang sound though.

    update:

    I yesterday called the TASS and inquired about the shocker pad. He said that the invoicing has been done but dispatch is not done yet. He also said that due to the fire in the warehouse all the fiat spare parts are getting delayed. dont know when they will restore to normal?

    See the Gear Ratio.

    Gear Ratio of Reverse Gear is always taller than 1st gear. There are very few cars having same gear ratio i.e. ( same gear ratio for 1st & Reverse gear )
    So reverse gear has less power as compared to 1st gear

    Because of less power to reverse gear,at incline improper load comes on clutch.
    And if clutch assly. is faulty then clutch tends to slip because of this improper load.
    Sorumbling noise comes in reverse gear especially when we drive the car in reverse gear at incline.

    Please don't misunderstand ! Iam indicating Rumbling noise which is abnormal.

    I am not speaking about specific common noise that we listen in reverse gear
